Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Welcome to the new Grateful Dead forum

This past fall, the Grateful Dead collection at the Live Music Archive underwent significant changes, see
http://www.archive.org/about/faqs.php#215

This week, all Live Music Archive items are undergoing a major transition to a new system, see
http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=60401

As a result of the changes, it is now possible to have the Grateful Dead material be a more separate collection, with its own forum. So, if you want to talk about the time Bobby broke a string at the 15:43 mark of your favorite Dark Star, without worrying about griping from random Umphrey's McGee fans over in the "etree" forum, this GratefulDead forum is the place! ;)

BTW, there may be some unexpected problems with certain shows after the switchover, which just happened. Since the Grateful Dead material got a bit different this fall compared to the main LMA, I would not be surprised if there are some extra quirks in this new version of the GD collection, post-switchover. There will be some kinks to work out over time. Thanks for your patience. There is still a lot on the engineers' to-do list.

After going through most of the AUD recordings, it appears that most of the problems are with earlier years ('79 and older). If you could be so kind as to post something when the issues as a result of the changeover (which seem good to me, overall) are resolved? Thanks in advance.

If you could cite some specific example you've observed, giving the details pages links, in this thread in the main LMA forum,

that could help troubleshooting. Thanks!

As an example of a show whose AUD entry comes up as Stream Only (and from what I can see is not available on Dick's Picks):

I don't post that much here anymore but felt the need:

It's very nice of the Live Music Archive to give us our own space, something I thought was needed way back when...you know, before things changed and people got a little bent.

I like the new streaming box player thingy-ma-bob. Cool set-up that everyone should be able to use. Everybody who is responsible for the change-over stand up and take a bow.
Yes, especially you too, Diana. Good job dealing with all the endless GD posts, mad people, etc.

That's right, you guessed it. I'm still StrawRider over there too and have found many friendly deadheads as a result. Thanks for all those links, eventually some of us do use them!

Now that there's a Dead-centric forum here, maybe we'll see a cadre of DNC'ers pop over here over time! But it's so fast and furious over there with the posts in some of the subforums, I imagine it's hard to get away. ;) It can get like a chatroom feel there, but in msgboard form.

Looks like the intra-Head abuse has already started, y'all don't need any fans of other bands for that. ;)
